Managing all corporate mobility requirements through a single platform 3

Corporate mobility encompasses all trips related to work, both commuting to work as well as intraday trips. These corporate mobility requirements are currently met with various modes of transport, and vehicles. Some of these vehicles are owned, some are leased, and some are used on demand (public transport, taxi, ride hail, car share).

Ownership of vehicles and trips are managed either manually or through fragmented, monolithic support tools and technologies like telematics, fleet management, ERP solutions and ride hailing applications. With the raise of on demand and shared mobility solutions, decision makers are also experiencing a mind shift from total cost of ownership to total cost of mobility. This leads to focusing on cost per kilometer within the corporate mobility space. As a result there is now a greater need to manage all or most of corporate mobility requirements through a single platform to switch to cost per mile model, regardless of mode of transport or vehicle ownership.

Such central and single platform will increase visibility on the trips, costs and resource allocation. It would help to minimize the cost, increase access to multimodal solutions and most importantly make corporate mobility more convenient for the employees. This is not an evident task as each city have its own dynamics and infrastructure as well as the corporations it hosts have varying requirements and workforce types, hardening the proliferation of a one platform fits all approach. Yet a robust and feature rich mobility platform with the right configuration and integration abilities coupled with right partnerships in the regions it is deployed would have a chance to consolidate the fragmented corporate mobility modes and benefit all parties involved.

In this paper we will discuss the initiation of such Corporate Mobility as a Service Platform at Vektor Mobility, the ongoing process of joining the existing mobility support solution verticals (connected car, car sharing, fleet management, commute shuttle pooling and management) and deeper integration with mobility solutions, case studies and initial commercial results will be discussed in this paper.

Introduction

During work hours, a significant portion have further corporate mobility requirements (sales visits, business meetings, etc…), and commute back home to finish the work day. Corporate mobility encompassing all mobility requirements from the moment an employee leaves home until her return home will account for a significant portion of the overall 70 trillion passenger km² by 2030. As an example in UK, 20% of all miles driven are for commute, and another 9% are for intraday corporate mobility. While these ratios vary by country, we expect corporate mobility to account for about 30% of all miles driven, roughly 20 trillion KM by 2030.
By commute and intraday mobility requirement breakdown below are the modes of transport usually available to corporations.

Across the globe everyday more than 3 billion1 people commute to work. Number of commuters is rising steadily year over year.
